House, now used as caravan clubhouse, possibly C17th with late C16th remains, altered. Rendered brick with some timber framing and with slate roof. Courtyard plan. Main parts are: a south range; a wing on the west side adjoining the north side of the latter; an adjoining wing running further north; a wing on the east side of the courtyard, connecting with the east side of the south range at its corner. 2 storeys with attic. All windows modern with plain reveals. South front has 2-storey gabled porch with modern addition on ground floor. To the left are 3 bays, the left-hand one being blank on the ground floor. To the right are 2 bays, the right-hand one having a door on the ground floor. Chimney on right-hand gable and between bays 2 & 3 to left of porch. Gables have copings with kneelers. West gable of this wing has 2 bays, with modern oriels on 1st floor. Adjoining to the north, the west facade has an embattled canted section with windows to its outer sides. The central part of the facade is of 2 bays, the right-hand bay having 2 adjoining ground-floor doorways with pointed heads. At the left is a projecting stack with offsets. The northern most section of the west facade has a timber bay window filled with leaded stained glass, the lower lights being paired under ogee heads. On each side on the 1st floor is a window with timber mullions and stained glass. The wing forming the east facade of the building is possibly C18th, altered in the C19th and C20th. Although externally it shows nothing of architectural interest it is possible that it may contain old features.

Interior. The northern room on the west side has a moulded shouldered stone fireplace of early C18th type with moulded cornice and with arms carved on the lintel. The south range contains an early C18th stair, possibly not in its original position (c.f. VCH Vol. 7 p.276), with 5 steps at the bottom and then a straight flight at right angles. It has an open string and moulded handrail, the straight flight retaining its turned balusters, 2 to each tread, one fluted. On the north side of the south range is an internal courtyard, now with a glass roof at 1st floor level. Above the roof on the south side is a timber-framed wall, continuously glazed with 2 rows of wooden mullioned windows separated by a transom. Below are 2 rows of square-framed panels with decorative bracing, mostly quatrefoils. Under the eaves is a coving. The development of the building is complex and would merit detailed investigation. Other early features may well be hidden beneath later alterations.
